The leadership of Radiant Church is committed to proper stewardship of God’s resources.
“Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.” – 1 Corinthians 4:2
We treat tithes and offering as “Worship.” And worship is to be taken seriously at Radiant Church. For that reason every dollar will be accounted for and used strategically for the kingdom of God! Radiant Church implements a conservative approach to finances in light of Proverbs 21:20. “In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil.”
Our church budget never exceeds 90% of the previous year’s Income. Radiant Church fiscally operates on “budget floors” and “budget Ceilings”.
Expenses should be as follows:
Missions: never below 10%
Salaries: never above 35%
Facilities: never above 20%
Having margin in our budget allows us to meet our financial goal of radical generosity! We want to make sure that we have more than we need so that we can be a blessing to the world around us. The Bible says that though they don’t believe what we believe, the world should see our good deeds and glorify our Father, which is in heaven. (1 Peter 2:12) The only way for us to do those good deeds is to have the finances necessary. So that is why we have an incredible financial strategy to make sure we always have excess to do everything that God’s called us to do.
